Broker's Comments
All in all, this Cabo 35 Express is the cleanest, most well-kept and loaded model I have ever had the pleasure to represent.  She has been triumphant in fishing tournaments and is ready for her next Captain offered at a tremendous value.  She will be hauled soon for winter storage but will be available for viewings.
The Cabo 35 Flybridge has a deep –V hull which rides exceptionally soft in choppy seas.  It is one of the driest, most roomy and comfortable fishing platforms in the market.  Separated from her competition with her impeccable running bottom due to the manufacturing process and materials, she stands alone.  Her celebrated strength is uncompromised.  Made by fishermen for fishermen, her offshore sporting prowess is professional grade. Fishing gear and personal items excluded from the sale.
